Spring Lawn Care Tips: #1 – Raking
Raking should be your very first task as spring approaches. Fall raking got rid of dead leaves, but spring raking also helps to control thatch. More than 1/2 of thatch build-up is excessive. We recommend that you rake deeply to help loosen thatch so that your lawn can breathe better and receive rich nutrients that are abundant in spring.
Spring Lawn Care Tips: #2 – Check for Compaction
If you lawn experiences areas of high traffic throughout fall and winter, chances are that you have issues with dense soil compaction. The presence of moss is a sign that you have dense soil compaction issues. If you see signs of compaction, contact us to analyze your lawn for a solution. Oftentimes, aeration will eliminate compaction issues.
Spring Lawn Care Tips: #3 – Overseeding
If your lawn has bare patches due to high traffic, dog spots, etc., overseeding may be the solution. Though spring isn’t the preferred time of year for overseeding, it may help in specific areas of your lawn to overseed early. If you have bare patches in your lawn, let us have a look to see if overseeding those areas is best for you.
Spring Lawn Care Tips: #4 – Pruning
In the spring, we must prune trees or shrubs that have been damaged by winter storms. Pruning roses as soon as buds begin to swell is a great practice as well. If you need advice about the proper way to prune trees, shrubs, and flowers, contact us and we will be happy to help you.
